Thelma Golden is the Director and Chief Curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem and a fierce advocate for diversity and equity in the art world. Her work has been recognized by the Ford Foundation, the Obama Foundation, and the Aspen Institute, among others.
The conversation will be moderated by Matthew Tiews, Stanford’s interim senior associate vice president for the arts.
